John Andress to swap Edinburgh for Munster

Prop John Andress is leaving Edinburgh in the summer to join Munster on a one-year deal.

Andress has made 48 appearances since joining Edinburgh in 2014 following a seven-year spell in England, where he played for Exeter, Harlequins and Worcester after moving from his native Ulster.

The 32-year-old said: "I've really valued my time here. My game has really improved through the coaching, we've a great group of players and backroom staff and I've no doubt the club will build on the momentum from this season and go on to do bigger and better things.

"I've obviously enjoyed my time at the club immensely and, being on 48 caps, it would be great to leave having achieved my 50th cap and be able to mark my time here in such a special way."
